TecQuipment specially designed the Aerodynamics range of products for teaching. We placed emphasis on ease of use, reliability and safety. Whether used by lecturers to demonstrate aerodynamic basic principles or advanced ideas, or by students for project work, the educational equipment gives valuable hands-on experience. This experience is not always possible or practical with large-scale industrial or complex research facilities. Subject areas include Subsonic, Special Purpose and Supersonic Wind Tunnels, Nozzles, Fans and Compressors.
Control is an essential feature of modern engineering systems. Aircraft, motor vehicles, shipping, production lines, oil refineries, manufacturing and domestic equipment all depend on control systems and sensors. Engineers need an understanding of modern control engineering principles, based on a solid foundation of theoretical and practical training. TecQuipment’s Control Engineering range offers a wide selection of innovative and well-proven equipment, providing reliable, safe and practical solutions to control engineering teaching. Subject areas include Principals of Control Engineering, MATLAB® and Simulink® Control, Process Control and Digital Control and sensors and instrumentation.
Electrical Power Systems
The Electrical Power Systems range from TecQuipment is a unique range of world-class products specially designed to provide cost-effective, realistic and highly productive teaching. The range offers complete solutions that allow students to learn about and thoroughly understand all the components of electrical power systems: generation, transformation, transmission, distribution, utilisation and protection. This area of study is becoming increasingly important, as the systems we use have to cope with power from greener but less reliable renewable power sources and less centralised generation from homes and businesses.
The TecQuipment Engineering Science Range consists of 18 experiment kits in fundamental Engineering Science topics common to most mechanical engineering disciplines. This includes the study of forces, moments, friction, materials science, vibration, gears pulleys, chains and mechanisms. The system is modular, and each kit does numerous experiments making the system flexible and great value for money. Ideal for curricula based on educating students in four specific disciplines — science, technology, engineering and mathematics at colleges and schools. The ES range, with its hands-on approach and detailed experiment notes, provides the perfect link between theory and real world application.
TecQuipment’s Engineering Science range is the foundation of STEM education.
The modular equipment is based around our hydraulics bench. The bench supplies water to a wide range of experiments, from simple flow measurement devices, to studies of vortices and open-channel flow. This highly proven approach is compact, safe and economical. Additional to our modular equipment is a wide variety of free-standing experiments. These products cover various areas within fluid mechanics, including hydrology, hydrostatics and fluid machines. Modular fluid power machines are the latest innovation from TecQuipment. They are a series of realistically sized fluid power machines, including pumps, turbines, fans and compressors, driven by an interchangeable dynamometer. Each machine has all the instruments to measure its performance and exposes students to real world applications of fluid mechanics. Highly motivating, they effectively bridge the gap between theory and practice, also linking into the areas of aerodynamics and thermodynamics.
Materials Testing and Properties
TecQuipment’s Materials Testing and Properties range has been developed over a number of years to fully support modern engineering degree courses. The high-quality, robust construction of the equipment makes it ideal for the laboratory environment. It provides long-term performance and reliability to give dependable, accurate results every time. Included in the wide array of subject areas are Basic Elastic Properties, Stress & Strain, Testing for Torsion, Tensile, Fatigue, Creep and Impact, and Modular and Free Standing Structures Experiements.
The statics fundamentals range comprises of a series of simple yet stimulating experiments that each fit onto a common work panel. The experiments are quick to set up and simple to use. The experiments cover all manner of topics related to static equilibrium, this provides a useful foundation for further experiments covered by the Structures (STR) range.
TecQuipment’s modular Structures range offers a cost-effective, flexible teaching system that we believe is the most advanced product in its field. The range teaches basic principles to more advanced theory. It has 19 desk-mounting hardware experiment modules supported by full automatic data acquisition, and TecQuipment’s powerful and popular Structures Software (STRS). You can use the hardware modules and the Structures Software together or as stand-alone products. However, using both with automatic data acquisition gives a powerful teaching solution. In addition, the products include a full selection of user guides, student guides, lecturer guides, textbook and other supporting material. These work together so anyone using the equipment gets the best from it – teachers and students alike.
Theory of Machines
An awareness of the way machines work is fundamental to most engineering courses. Students need to understand the principles of mechanical advantage, cams, vibration and mechanical movement to give them a solid foundation of knowledge about mechanical system behaviour. This knowledge will serve them throughout their academic and future engineering careers. TecQuipment offers an outstanding selection of quality products to teach the principles and theory of machines. The strong designs clearly teach a comprehensive range of basic and advanced principles used in engineering throughout the world.
TecQuipment developed its Thermodynamics and Heat Transfer range alongside educationalists and students. It offers an extensive selection of high-quality, robust equipment. All products in the range have advanced educational performance to meet practical thermodynamics experiment needs effectively and safely. TecQuipment designed the products to reach equilibrium in the shortest possible time, allowing students to complete experiments in a single laboratory session. Students can test thermodynamic theories for themselves and gain first-hand experience of working thermodynamic processes. Subject areas include Thermodynamic Principles, Heat Transfer, Heat Pumps, Temperature and Humidity, Steam, Internal Combustion Engine Test Sets, Gas Turbines and Compressors.
Versatile Data Acquisition System (VDAS) & LabVIEW
VDAS® is a modern, cost-effective automatic data acquisition system for use with TecQuipment’s teaching equipment. It is easy to set up and use and offers real-time data capture, fast recording, calculation, charting and data export.
